Students to host annual Health Fair at Wellness Center

The annual Health Fair will be held Monday Oct. 22 in Murray State’s Wellness Center. The fair was created by exercise science students in an effort to not only promote good health on campus, but to also make students aware of their current health situations.

The fair seeks to inform students and staff how to reach their optimum levels of health. The exercise science students know that the most effective way of avoiding traumatic health situations is to stay fit and eat healthy. They are hoping the fair will teach others how to care for their bodies in order to stay in good health.

In addition to health information, the exercise science students will be administering a variety of tests free of charge to any person interested in knowing more about their current levels of health.

Some of the tests will include heart rate, blood pressure, muscular strength, muscular endurance, power, flexibility and respiratory capacity.

The fair will be open to anyone interested and will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 22 in the Murray State Wellness Center.
